Why does an 18 year old want to kill people, is what we should be worried about (no one is going to carry around 25 guns at one time obviously). Figure out why these young people want to murder and the real root causes can be addressed.
Bing! Bing! Bing!

Exactly my point. You get a gold star for today!

Is there anything unlawful here?
Of course not.

Not based on the extremely limited facts contained in that reporting, no.


Then again, the kid wasn't arrested because of the weapons and ammo, was he?

I'm with others, I'm betting the guns legally belonged to his father. Not to say he didn't/wouldn't have access to them, however.
I agree.

Dang when I was 18 the only rifle I had was a .22 marlin. When I went hunting I had to borrow one of my dad’s rifles or shotgun.

And god knows I didn’t have enough scratch to buy but a brick of .22’s.

He mentions exactly ONE case involving a white supremacist--a failed bombing of an MLK parade in Spokane, WA, in 2011. The other cases he covers are all of Islamic terrorists.
Far more people are killed in other scenarios than what OP is alluding to.

22LR went up in price and was often unavailable under Obama, many people stocked up and got deals on large quantities when it was available. I used to get email notifications from an online vendor when they had "99+ 5000 round bricks in stock" and by the time I got on my computer to have a look (west coast time zone) it was often all gone again. Someone having large stockpiles of ammo should raise no alarm. My family/friends will easily go through 4 mags worth each or more in our 22 rifles alone in an hour at the range, and that's 400 rounds right there.

That said, it sounds like this teen was headed for trouble or was extremely stupid in joking about it, so good on all for the bust.

Turns out the arsenal was the dad's.

No reason to investigate him, though. He didn't commit any crime.

Quote:
It was in his father’s bedroom where officials observed “rifle cases, approximately 10,000 rounds of ammunition, camouflage clothing and camouflaged backpacks” along with a gun vault.

According to the complaint, Eric Olsen opened the gun vault for investigators. It contained several AR-15 style rifles and shotguns. Agents seized 15 rifles and shotguns as well as 10 semi-automatic pistols.

I’m not alluding to anything. It is what it is.

You refute that? Please tell...
